Leisure ports in Malaga will add more than 1,000 new berths

Malaga’s leisure ports will add more than 1,000 new berths

Two new projects that are well underway will provide the Costa del Sol more than 1,000 new berths, which will alleviate the unquestionable shortage for nautical tourism on the Costa del Sol. To this number should be added the work that is being done on the existing ports of Caleta de Vélez, Benalmádena, La Bajadilla, Fuengirola and Estepona. Expansions to these are expected to come to 2,980 new berths. Works that are projected on the one hand on the beaches of San Andrés, on the Western Costa del Sol in the city of Malaga, and on the other in the municipality of Torrox, on the Eastern Costa del Sol, between them will add a total of 1,100 berths.

In the first of these cases expectations are for an investment of more than 24 million euros and for the work to take 24 months. There are plans to build 626 rental berths, of which 466 will be of varying lengths and 160 will be located in the dry marina. A total of 508 berths are expected to be added in the case of Torrox. The most advanced port is that of Fuengirola, which will go from 434 berths to 901 while also enabling the docking of cruise craft.

The Costa del Sol has the following leisure ports at present:

  •  La Duquesa, in Manilva: 328 berths

  •  Estepona Leisure Port: 446 berths

  •  Puerto Banús, in Marbella: 915 berths

  •  Marbella: 377 berths

  •  La Bajadilla, in Marbella: 268 berths

  •  Cabopino, in Marbella: 169 berths

  •  Fuengirola: 434 berths

  •  Benalmádena: 979 berths. There is a project for 825 new berths

  •  El Candado, in the city of Malaga: 281 berths

  •  Real Club Mediterráneo, in the city of Malaga: 62 berths

  •  Caleta de Vélez, in Vélez Malaga (Eastern Costa del Sol): 274 berths

This all goes to show that leisure ports, one of the highest-quality tourism categories and one of those providing the most revenue to the Costa del Sol, continue to grow despite the crisis. A total of three thousand people are waiting to obtain a berthing slot for their craft, although many owners have opted to transfer their boats to Gibraltar, Morocco or the Portuguese Algarve.
